What’s the Buzz?

Hey, all! Author friends of mine are starting to explore the Hive Social app, so I figured I’d try it out.

It’s been easy to navigate so far, with a few loading hiccups and screen flickers. Unfortunately, it’s solely a phone app. Well, you can use a phone emulator for your computer if you’d like–go research that if you’re really inclined. Otherwise, it’s available for Android and iPhone users.

I’ve been on the fence about Twitter for a while. I’m still unsure what I’m going to eventually do with my account. I always find that I’m playing catch-up with replies to my tweets, and the environment there can be toxic at times. On the other hand, I have found it a nice virtual water cooler to connect with other writers and publishing professionals. Those are my main contacts on Twitter, though once in a while, I’ll get a nice reader comment.

A few tips for those who want to join the Hive:

-When searching for friends, type in their username without the @ symbol

-Feel free to personalize your profile settings, including customizing colors and adding in horoscope signs

-Links can be pasted into posts, but there aren’t any previews, so adding in an image may be helpful

Wherever you are on your social media path, I hope you enjoy it. And if you’re on Hive, find me @jenjchow.
